If the 20MA Weekly is holding and we close above it we are in the Bullrun. Just a healthy pullback then.

I can't believe SJW rot has infiltrated Bitcoin Core, to the point they ACKED a merge to change "blacklist" to "blocklist".

For Bitcoin.

A blockchain.

...

Similar to Linux being attacked for not having enough females working on the open source project.

I don't know the whole story, but from what I understand, Linus Torvalds is a bit of an asshole (an understatement) when it comes to his management style. When he disagrees with one of his core developers over something, he tends to go for the jugular and try to condescend, demoralize and shame them for being stupid. Actually not much unlike how Steve Jobs was with subordinates.

My assessment is that that men on the Linux dev team had to develop really thick skin in order to even deal with him, and that most women devs that tried couldn't deal with his shit....they just couldn't hack it. A few left in tears.

Note that I'm not defending Linus' bad behavior or the toxic work environment; it is what it is. It doesn't matter if you are a man or a woman, if you are going to work on Linux core, you are going to have to deal with him.

IF you're a woman, under 40 years of age, around 55kg and nice looking, I'd like to meet and skull-fuck your brains out.
Teething and biting is not allowed, whilst rimming is most welcome.

Maybe I see things too often from a romantic side, but I absolutely don't understand why you would not allow teething and biting?

I almost got in alot of trouble for biting the hell out of a chick once. Smiley

That's right, I remember reading about you in the Mirror.

Well shit, I thought I got that story squashed! Grin

Block Lives Matter?

Blockhead Looting Maniacs.

Or, Block Links Merklechained.  Speaking of which, I don’t know why as yet, nobody realized this:



A “chain” is an unavoidable link to slavery, and also to the chain-gang.  It is symbolic, like a noose:  It reminds Blocks of Very Scary Things.

The Blockchain is a structural microaggression that excludes Blocks from Bitcoin cryptocurrency FinTech market opportunities with the subtextual semiotic that all Blocks belong in chains.

If you disagree, you’re a racist, which is obviously bad because racists believe that all Blocks should be chained, which is obviously bad because if you put Blocks in chains, you’re a racist.  Obviously bad.  “Blockchain” cancelled.  End of argument.



Next to be renamed:  Blackhat and whitehat hackers (next Black Hat conference should be interesting...), military/intelligence black ops (Secret Acts of Compassionate Philanthropy for Universal Liberation), CIA black sites (Happy Fun Sites), secret police blackbag searches (Self-Welcoming Trust and Safety Checks)...  Spamfighting has blacklists, whitelists, and greylists.  This last is offensive to Grey Aliens (who are no doubt illegal—I mean, undocumented), and must be changed, too.  The usage in some industries of “whitewater” to refer to fresh, potable drinking water, “blackwater” to refer to raw sewage, and “greywater” to something in between—oh, never mind.

Well, I should “stfu”.  The blackhearted blackguards of Newspeak persistently outshine satirists.



Reads like i'll get my arse kicked with a wordy boot?!  Huh

No worries; I meant that I was inspired and not antagonized.



Similar to Linux being attacked for not having enough females working on the open source project.

More than that:  Code of Conduct, a subtle doublespeak term in the manner of “re-education”.  Also, they coerced Linus to apologize and seek psychiatric “help” (!) due to his, shall we say, characteristically harsh style of interacting with those whom he deemed to be stupid and/or dishonestly motivated.  (Whether or not they agree with my political and social commentary, certain Core devs (cough) should be quite concerned about that...)  As icing on the cake, Linus’ own daughter basically stabbed him in the back in a roundabout way.

N.b. that one of the ideologues inciting the mob against Linus is known to have explicitly condemned the concept of meritocracy.  The common fallback (and in this context, it is a cowardly fallback) of “I don’t care who wrote the code:  I just want the best code” will not protect you.  In the manner of Animal Farm, it is dogma that everybody is exactly equal, females are twice as equal as males (but penises in skirts are more female than the “cisgendered”), Blocks are twenty times as equal as Wights, Transgenderqueer Blocks of Colour are exponentially more equal, etc., etc.  Code quality is irrelevant.  Who wrote the code is what counts!

So as for Linux.

I hope that the protests on Github are not inadvertently helping to polarize the situation.  The manipulators who push for these kinds of things want polarization:  They want to get you angry and off-balance, and catch the lead developers off-balance and on the defensive.  That’s how people wind up talking past each other (an important concept to study!), until the lead devs just take whatever seems like the path of least resistance so they can wash their hands of the mess, and get back to coding.  Try to see it from their perspective, keep calm and professional... don’t play into the hands of the manipulators.



Just passing through, scribbling a coredump in haste.  This was supposed to be about three lines long (whoops!).  I hope to see the “Blocks in chains” thing pop up elsewhere, now...



Edit—Torque posted as I was writing the foregoing:

I don't know the whole story, but from what I understand, Linus Torvalds is a bit of an asshole (an understatement) when it comes to his management style. When he disagrees with one of his core developers over something, he tends to go for the jugular and try to condescend, demoralize and shame them for being stupid.

That’s the narrative—a big piece of it.  The story of what happened with Linux a few years ago is much more convoluted, as I noted above.  Moreover, complaints about a “toxic work environment” pretty much describe how many bitter altcoiners shriek at Bitcoin Core, just because their bad ideas were not coddled to their satisfaction.  Bitcoin Core is the last place that should welcome this type of thinking.

(This brings to mind something from my own experience:  A time when I reached out in private to a Core developer to ask about the prospects for something that I wanted, which Core had previously rejected when proposed by others.  He replied with a polite, but very firm explanation of why it would not be accepted.  His reasoning was sound, so I accepted it with thanks for the time that he took to explain this to me.  I paused to reflect on the public flamewars that I have seen in Bitcoinland, and realized that many people simply must be unable to accept that their pet ideas were rejected.)

Perhaps this unfortunate fellow:

Should have sold as 12k.

And now I should have sold at 10k and also this has passed :-/

Maybe I put in a sellorder at 10k and hope it gets fulfilled if we spike about 10k for a short period again.

Insightful post by the way.

People mostly either want positive attention (have-a-cookie), or they are too narcissistic to be able to handle their ideas to be rejected.
The ones tend to fight authorities, the others tend to obey to them.
If a core dev, clearly an authority, puts down some idea of mine because it's rubbish, it most likely is rubbish. If he even explains why, i consider that no less than polite, so it's just natural to respond in a similar way.  Also, flame wars in the IT community just make the whole scene look like a kindergarten full of nerds.

I agree completely.

The name should be changed to tangle.

From here on out, tangle should be the correct nomenclature for that formerly known as chain.

A blocktangle could become confused with a rektangle, however.

To this day I still do not have a clear explanation for why the alts all went sky high at that time.  It may have been some kind of spill over effect from btc's rise in Dec of 2017.   But it was cool, it gave me a decent stash of btc. (it still doesn't wipe out the regret of having sold so many in the early days, but whatever)

I'll tell you exactly why. The whale pumpers had already started the Bitcoin bull run back in 2015/2016, but turning the corner into 2017, they needed a mega distraction. (The theory is that whales already had insider knowledge of the coming BTC futures market launch near the end of 2017). They wanted everyone possible to sell their bitcoin prior to the blow off top. That is how they make money, by FUDing and second-guessing everyone out of their bitcoin at all the wrong times. Also at the same time, Roger Ver and Wu were forking Bitcoin (over Segwit and the blocksize debate), and whale traders were legit attempting a "flippening" with ETH, and trolling the shit out of the forums during all of it. ICO scams around ETH were also running rampant.

So by mysteriously pumping every other shitcoin known to man sky high, suddenly and without explanation, while at the same time selling off bitcoin, starting a flame war around SegWit and the blocksize debate, pumping a supposed ETH "flippening" with ICO scams, and shilling/pumping the new BCH fork, they were legit trying to scare all the n00bs right out of bitcoin and right into the shitcoin markets. It's clear that stirring FUD was all part of their plan. I'm guessing it worked on some people. If you remember, there was MEGA trolling and confusion going on at the time. Then they pumped Bitcoin parabolic right on the BTC futures launch in November 2017.


Thank you for this answer.  Back in 2018 I had posted a question about the alt's spike in January, within the general discussions, but received zero replies.  My guess was that no one had a good answer.  I'll count yours as the first reply.

This next run up to a new ath should see around an order of magnitude increase in price, and with all that money circulating there should be an order of magnitude increase in shenanigans.  And officer Barbrady will be no where in sight to deal with it.

Its impossible to tell when or what the next ath will be, the only thing I know for sure is that it will be a fun ride.

edit:  ath, not atm.   Tongue
